    How to put maximum word limit in jotform

    Asked by cynthiaelsevier on May 23, 2014 at 03:08 AM

    Hi All,

    I'd like to impose a 500 word limit in my JotForm. 

    I can put a 500 character limit, but could someone please advise on how I can ensure a 500 word limit?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    You can set maximum word limit from properties of a text area. To achieve this, just select the text area and click Entry Limit on the above toolbar. Then you can set character or word limit of the field.
